Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    VFD stands for what?

    • A.

      Very Fine Dog

    • B.

      Variable Air Volume

    • C.

      Variable Frequency Drive

    • D.

      Variable Frequency Motor

    Correct Answer
    C. Variable Frequency Drive
    Explanation
    VFD stands for Variable Frequency Drive. This device controls the speed and torque of an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to it. It is commonly used in industrial and commercial applications to save energy and improve motor performance. The other options, Very Fine Dog, Variable Air Volume, and Variable Frequency Motor, do not accurately represent the meaning of VFD.

    VAV stands for what?

    • A.

      Value After Vortex

    • B.

      Variable Air Volume

    • C.

      Variable Frequency Drive

    • D.

      Value After Value

    Correct Answer
    B. Variable Air Volume
    Explanation
    VAV stands for Variable Air Volume. This term refers to a type of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system that regulates the volume of air being supplied to different areas or zones of a building based on the specific heating and cooling needs of each area. By adjusting the airflow, VAV systems can provide more precise temperature control and energy efficiency compared to traditional constant air volume systems.

    What is a Dual Pressure Switch used to contol?

    Correct Answer
    Compressor, Refrigerant System, Walk-in Cooler or Freezer, Refrigerant Proccess
    Explanation
    A Dual Pressure Switch is used to control the compressor, refrigerant system, walk-in cooler or freezer, and refrigerant process. It is a device that monitors and regulates the pressure levels in a refrigeration system. It ensures that the compressor operates within safe pressure limits and helps maintain the desired temperature in the cooling system. By sensing the high and low pressure points, the dual pressure switch can activate or deactivate the compressor as needed, ensuring efficient and reliable operation of the refrigeration system.

    What does CFM stand for?

    Correct Answer
    Cubic Feet Per Minute, cubic feet per minute
    Explanation
    CFM stands for Cubic Feet Per Minute, which is a unit of measurement used to quantify the volume of air flow in a given space. It represents the amount of air that can be moved or exchanged in one minute. This measurement is commonly used in various industries, such as HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), to determine the efficiency and capacity of air handling systems. The repetition of "cubic feet per minute" in the answer reinforces the correct acronym and its meaning.

    What are 2 ways of contoling valves, dampers, ect. in a commercial building?

    • A.

      Pneumatic

    • B.

      Low Voltage

    • C.

      Electronicly

    • D.

      High Voltage

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Pneumatic
    C. Electronicly
    Explanation
    Two ways of controlling valves, dampers, etc. in a commercial building are through pneumatic and electronically. Pneumatic control systems use compressed air to operate the valves and dampers, providing a reliable and efficient method of control. On the other hand, electronic control systems utilize electronic signals to regulate the functioning of these components, offering precise and programmable control. Both methods are commonly employed in commercial buildings to ensure proper operation and optimization of various systems.

    Some refrigerant leak detectors will pick up what?

    Correct Answer(s)
    Repelents like in deoderents and in insolation., Unusual particles in the air., repelents like in deoderents and in insolation, unusual particles in the air
    Explanation
    Refrigerant leak detectors are designed to detect the presence of refrigerant gases that may be leaking from a system. However, in addition to refrigerant gases, these detectors can also pick up other substances such as repellents found in deodorants and insulation. These repellents may contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be detected by the leak detectors. Additionally, the detectors can also pick up unusual particles in the air that may indicate a refrigerant leak. Therefore, the correct answer includes both repellents like those found in deodorants and insulation, as well as unusual particles in the air.

    What is the definition of a water regulator valve?

    Correct Answer(s)
    A device that depends on head pressure to allow the flow of condensor water., A device that depends on head pressure, water on or off to allow water tho cool condensor., a device that depends on head pressure to allow the flow of condensor water, a device that depends on head pressure, water on or off to allow water tho cool condensor
    Explanation
    A water regulator valve is a device that relies on head pressure to control the flow of condenser water. It is designed to allow the water to flow through the condenser when the head pressure is at the desired level. This helps in regulating the temperature and cooling of the condenser. The valve can also be used to turn the water on or off, depending on the head pressure, in order to maintain the optimal cooling of the condenser.

    For a pressure switch,more difference equals what?

    Correct Answer(s)
    More time for pressure switch to turn compressor on., More on/off time., more time for pressure switch to turn compressor on, more on/off time
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that more difference equals more time for the pressure switch to turn the compressor on and more on/off time. This means that when there is a greater difference in pressure, it takes longer for the pressure switch to activate the compressor and there is a longer interval between the compressor turning on and off.

    What air flow requirements are needed for proper cooling?

    Correct Answer(s)
    400 to 450 cfm per ton, 400 to 450 cfm per ton of cooling, 400 cfm, 450 cfm, 400 to 450 cfm
    Explanation
    The air flow requirements needed for proper cooling are 400 to 450 cfm per ton of cooling. This means that for every ton of cooling capacity, the air flow should be between 400 and 450 cubic feet per minute. Maintaining this air flow range ensures efficient cooling and proper heat transfer in the cooling system.
